An attempt at conversation

I haven't been talking much, have I?

In the past few months, I saw myself careening through the stress of final exams. In retrospect, I don't think I've ever studied that hard and that long. I'm honestly amazed at myself--at how I woke up everyday at 8:30 AM and never stopped studying until it was time to sleep.

But what's even more amazing is how my priorities gradually shifted. In the early months of the semester I saw myself dating around, trying my luck on finding a partner that could possibly replace the last. And then, just like that, I stopped.

I stopped trying not to be alone. Stopped caring that my ex found a replacement less than a week after we broke up. Stopped caring about physical and emotional imperfections that he would carelessly point out every now and then. I just stopped. And thank God I did.


So what have I been up to lately? Aside from reading books, working, and spending time with my family in what little free time I have, I also watch movies. Just the other day I watched there was a filmfest in Greenbelt. I watched with my sister, and ended up getting free tickets to this film:

The film portrays a modern Italian guy's attempt at making his family understand homosexuality. It's so much more than that, of course, so you'll have to go find a copy of the film yourself. What I can say is that it's a great film that personally made me laugh and realize a lot of things.

So I guess I'll see you around then?
